"Domonic is swinging good, man," Manuel said.

• Darin Ruf struggled early, but has looked better recently.

Ruf went 2-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI. He is hitting .320 (8-for-25) in his last eight games.

"He's hitting better," Manuel said. "He's going to hit. He's hit everywhere he's been. He's got a good swing."
